Travis Wetland is an important site for the local and regional conservation of wetland plants. Nearly 80 per cent of pre-European native wetland plant species are present in the wetland, including some now rare on the Canterbury Plains. There are around 53 species of native and introduced birds, including around fifty percent of the population of pukeko in Christchurch.  

Come and join our residential volunteers at this project. We'll be there from 9:30am-2:30 or 3pm but you're welcome to come for as much or as little time as you'd like.  

Bring: Your own gardening gloves, gumboots or waterproof shoes, a water bottle and sunhat. As part of our health and safety requirements, CVNZ requires volunteers to wear long sleeves and trousers as protection from the sun and vegetation.

We’ll supply tools, but you are welcome to bring your own.

We'd love to see you there, so please register below. Contact Donna (dlusby@cvnz.org.nz) 021 457 568 for more information. 

Note: Christchurch City Council requires volunteers to provide a vaccine passport to volunteer in their parks and reserves, so please bring yours along. 

COVID-19: We will be following the advice from government and local council on all Covid-19 restrictions.
